Bethesda's prepared to support Fallout 76 for a long, long time, according to the ever talkative Pete Hines. The Bethesda boss has told GameSpot that the developer plans on sticking with the online only title "as long as people keep playing it and it shows no sign of slowing down".
"How long is [Fallout 76] going to be up? Forever," Hines says. "I don't know how to give an answer other than that. It's not like anybody makes a game and goes, 'Well this is going to make it for 10 years if we're lucky.' Nobody thinks that way."
Obviously no one's expecting Fallout 76's servers to stay on forever, but it's clear that Betheda's willing to play the long game. And going by how unimpressed we were with the recent beta, long term support is probably a good thing.
"Once we get to private servers or whatever happens in the years following; I don't know. Maybe there's a point where it doesn't matter. But ... this is a massive franchise and a massive undertaking, and our commitment to it is it is never-ending, and that it continues on an ongoing basis," Hines reiterates.
